Tutorial

Create a spreadsheet

Create a spreadsheet on Google Sheets… Then, follow these rules:

  • Set each sheet with 2 columns and define a fixed header with the first line. Name each column as you wish
  • Keep this structure!

Here an example of a well-formatted spreadsheet.

Publish to the web

The spreadsheet must be public, to avoid any authentication and allow Sketch to pick a cell:

  • Go to File > Publish to the web
  • Click Publish

Link this spreadsheet

Once published:

  • Copy the spreadsheet's URL (⚠️from the URL bar!)
  • On Sketch, go to Plugins > Awesome ipsums > Sync. ipsums from a Google spreadsheet
  • Paste the URL into the text field

Just why?

Lorem ipsum is often used to simulate content into a designed web page. Nevertheless, there may be some issues:

  • It does not make any sense
  • It is quite boring and repetitive

Lorem ipsum could be fun, relevant, and fully personalized. A design team can create, collect and reuse his own fake content. How to get this team involved in collecting content? 👉An online spreadsheet, because it is easy to maintain and always up-to-date.
